No wonder it's doing so well at the box office.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/5
March 25, 2013
An impressive, colorful, imaginatively-designed cartoon adventure, rather spoiled by being shackled to a deeply perfunctory story.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 25, 2013
A witty and slapstick-laced script by writers-directors Chris Sanders and Kirk De Micco, some flawless 3-D work and solid character and beautiful background animation combine for an entertaining 92 minutes.

Dreamworks have done far more than simply dust off The Flintstones 2.0; The Croods may not yet be a household name, but with their personal brand of buffoonery and heart, you'll be wanting an introduction.

This is pure DreamWorks magic.

The Croods tells a pleasant story about family, the utility of man, and letting go -- all of which I will demonstrate in review with caveman-speak.

It's the Ice Age that isn't terrible and Cage, as the voice of papa caveman Grug, delivers his most interesting, energized, mainstream performance since... well, since I forget.

The humor's classic or prehistoric, depending on your tolerance for slapstick. The 3D animation is state of the art. And the life lessons are all too wearily contemporary.

The Croods isn't particularly smart, but it has just enough wit to keep us engaged and just enough speed to keep us from feeling restless.
March 24, 2013
"The Croods" is a touching animated film that not only entertains, but also delivers a sweet message about families and how change can be a good thing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

There's something depressing about the fact that The Croods could probably be watched by an audience anywhere in the world without subtitles and they wouldn't miss a thing.

The complacency and lack of imagination are painful.

The first great animated film of the year. Truly hilarious.

The Croods is exactly the sort of animated fare we receive on a monthly basis from Hollywood. On the scale of such efforts, it's pretty good, with an engaging second half making up for a tedious opening stretch.

It's funny. It's pretty. It's cute.

Kids will respond to the slapstick humour and the physicality of the action, and adults will find moments of insight and emotion
March 22, 2013
What is best, and riskiest, in this storytelling is the way that the sense of danger is palpable even when things are looking rosiest, and the impulse to hope is at its strongest when things look most dire
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

"The Croods" is fun and wild and exactly what the kids will love.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 22, 2013
The real problem is the script. Not so much the dialogue, which is functional and occasionally humorous, but more the story itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 22, 2013
It captures the wonder (and more gently, the anxiety) of discovery time and time again. And the filmmakers have a hoot playing with the Croods' encounters with, as well as their misunderstandings of, all things new.
